ON THE BLOG

I started posting on a regular basis (not every day though), but I’m getting there!

  • I REVAMPED MY COVER FEATURE! It’s now called Holy, Mother Cover! It’s fabulouuuusss. For the revamp, I introduced a new section of the cover feature, where I have a theme and post five book covers I like from it. The first one was on gorgeous typography! The second theme post I made was on witcheeeesssss! (That one was special for Armchair BEA!) I also talked about the Perfect Ruin cover change, which I was not a fan of.

   For Top Ten Tuesday, I showcased the book covers I’d frame on my wall as pieces of art! Sooo many    pretty ones.

  • I talked about how I used Goodreads, and I realize that most people do the same thing I do? I didn’t expect that. Ha!
  • If you missed my font posts, check them out here:

{11} Charlotte’s Picks! | {10} Rebel Belle (I found the title font!)

  • I wrote recaps about meeting Rachel Hawkins and Nina LaCour. (Both were incredibly sweet and lovely, and I was all sorts of awkward and nervous.)

 WHAT I WISH FOR JUNE?

  • To get out of my reading slump. I miss reading. :\
  • To start reviewing books again. I feel so rusty since I haven’t done it in like two months. Yikes!
  • More Holy, Mother Cover! posts!
  • Start requesting books (and that probably won’t happen until I start reviewing books).

*Cross my fingers for all these things to happen*

borderscribble How was your May? Any memorable thing happen? Did you enjoy any of my posts? Are you looking forward to June?

  1. OMG, I miss reading, too! I only read like 4 books in May and 3 of them were ’cause I was so pumped for Bout of Books. It’s been two weeks and I’m stuck on one book and it isn’t the book’s fault. Sigh. I also need to work on writing book reviews. Let’s do this, Cee!

    I still love your blog design, so happy that your birthday was awesome with the awesome books. You’re gonna looooove Since You’ve Been Gone, it’s sooooo good.
